With the Wii U winding down, it's a pretty safe statement to say that Nintendo didn't do too good of a job at marketing the new console early on. It seems many consumers were confused as to whether or not the machine was an add on to the Wii or something entirely new, and there wasn't much in the way of commercials and viral marketing that one would expect from a new console launch. Now, with the Nintendo Switch, it seems that Nintendo is finally focusing on getting it into the mind of general audiences.

On tonight's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Reggie Fils-Aime made an appearance to show off Super Mario Run and a live demonstration of the Switch. This is the first time the console's been seen since its announcement video, and Reggie decided to show it off with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It's a pretty fun video, and even Bill Trinen and Miyamoto made cameos in the audience.

What do you think? Was this a good way to show the console off in the wild for the first time? Do you think this will help it reach new audiences? Drop us a comment in the section below.
